Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Question

Installed this to use a program (ID3-Tagit). It created a limited user account called "ASP.NET Machine A" on my computer. Is this supposed to happen? Can that account be deleted? Just annoyed that I now have to select my account when booting up, wheras before I didn't. Is there any way around this?

Using Win XP Home SP1

Thanks.

That's normal when you install the .net framework.

from MS:
You can configure Windows XP to automate the logon process if your computer is not part of a domain.

1. Click Start, click Run, and type control userpasswords2.

2. Clear the Users must enter a username and password to use this computer check box.

3. Click Apply.

4. Enter the user name and password you wish to automatically log on with, and then click OK.

5. Click OK again and you're all done.

This feature allows other users to start your computer and use the account that you establish to automatically log on. Enabling auto logon makes your computer more convenient to use, but can pose a security risk.

If you don't know what it is, then you'll probably never use it. You can go ahead and delete the account.
